Silage mediums

Why silage mediums?

  • Steer the fermentation process toward acetic acid
  • Avoid incorrect fermentation
  • Reduce losses in nutrients and energy in the air-tight silo
  • Reduce reheating losses



Silage Medium

Plantasil

  • Heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria
  • For sugar-rich, low-protein substrates at > 35 % dry matter
  • Increases the acetic acid contents in the silage
  • Ensures aerobic preservability and prevents the intrusion of mould fungi and contaminants

  • Energy maize
  • Sweet sorghum
  • Whole-plant grain silage
  • 2.4 g/t silage
  • Liquid applications with 0.5–2 l/t silage

Lining Wrap

Lining Wrap - Protects Your Silo and Your Silage

Most effective protection of the silo wall and joints against acidic corrosion.

By using lining wrap you prevent silage effluent from escaping at undesirable locations. Moreover, you provide air-tight and water-tight edge closure for the silage. We recommend overlapping at least 30 cm over the silo wall base and 1 m over the silo wall. Additionally, you can install a drain pipe between the silage and the lining wrap to reduce water pressure on the silo wall.
